A doctor who left a cancer patient at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with a "deformed chest" has been suspended for another year.
Dr Mutasim Mohammed was banned from working in the UK last year following a misconduct hearing.
He had removed too much skin and tissue from the woman during a tumour removal procedure in 2009.
A review hearing of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service heard Dr Mohammed remained unrepentant.
It decided Mohammed - who now works as a surgeon at a private hospital in Saudi Arabia - was still not fit to return to work in the UK.
